Jean Renoir: Humanism in Film New

In the film The River, the narrator recounts memories of her childhood in India, when time passed unnoticed. It is a sentiment that pervades every great Jean Renoir film. Of the 40 or so he directed, none are bad, most are great, and more than a few are essential. As the son of French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste, Jean Renoir's lifelong involvement with creativity was a foregone conclusion. A true director's director, he was loved and admired by the likes of Orson Welles, Peter Bogdanovich, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, and all the then-young guns of the emerging French New Wave. Renoir's infallible romanticism and humanity flowed into all of his films. Watch and discuss Rules Of the Game, The Grand Illusion, Boudu Saved From Drowning, The Lower Depths, The Human Beast, The River, The Southerner, The Crime Of Monsieur Lange, La Chienne, and French Cancan.
